Fresh Mozzarella Pasta Casserole for #SundaySupper

 Once again this week we are getting the chance to work with Katie Workman and her new cookbook "The Mom 100".  The #sundaysupper crew were all asked to pick from a list of her recipes and recreate it adding our own twists. When I saw this recipe I knew it would be a hit in our home - we love pasta. This dish, like many featured in her book, are kid friendly, healthy, and quick to make. We chose to change it up a bit by mixing in ricotta along with our mozzarella for a more creamy texture!

  • 1 (12-16 oz) box pasta, shape of your choice 
  • 8 oz package fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes 
  • 8 oz whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 (24-28 oz) jar pasta sauce -we used tomato basil
  • Parmesan Cheese for topping (optional) 


 Cook pasta according to the package directions, bringing just below al dente. Drain the pasta and add the sauce, tossing to coat fold in Mozzarella and pour into a casserole dish sprinkle with Parmesan if using Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, until bubbly

We are honored to have Katie as our guest during our #SundaySupper live chat at 7:00 pm est.  Join us and chat with Katie about being a mom, kids and Spending time Around the Family Table.
